The suspect who was sentenced to 4 years in jail for killing West Shore RCMP Cst. Sarah Beckett in a drunk-driving crash will be spending an extra 18 months behind bars for causing another crash that took place a month later.
According to a CTV report, Kenneth Jacob Fenton pled guilty to two charges last month in relation to a crash on Goldstream Heights Drive that also involved drunk driving.
The charges were one count of ’cause an accident resulting in bodily harm’, and one count of ‘flight causing bodily harm or death’.
He will now be serving 18 months in custody, on top of his current sentence of 4 years in jail for the death of Cst. Sarah Beckett.
Fenton also faces a total of $1,500 in fines, a five-year driving prohibition that commences once he’s out of jail, and is banned from owning any firearms or crossbows.
Cst. Sarah Beckett, 32, was killed in the early morning hours of April 5th, 2016 when the marked police car she was driving was struck by a pickup truck in the intersection of Peatt Road and Goldstream Avenue.
She left behind a husband, Brad Aschenbrenner, and two young children.
